Ohio Department Of Aging Investing $6 Million To Revitalize Adult Day Services

The Ohio Department of Aging announced a significant initiative, committing $6 million in grant funding to bolster adult day services across the state. “Adult day services provide many older Ohioans with treasured moments of social interaction with their peers while empowering them to remain in their homes and communities. It also provides their caregivers the opportunity for a welcome break from their duties with peace of mind that their loved ones’ needs are being met,” Director J. McElroy explained. The funding serves a threefold purpose: encouraging new providers to join and previous providers to return to the adult day services industry; supporting existing providers in expanding their service capabilities for long-term sustainability; and enhancing recruitment and retention of employees dedicated to adult day services. aging.ohio.gov
